CRESCO (AP) -

A trial has been scheduled for a man accused of killing his wife in northern Iowa.

An August 8 start date was set Monday for 34-year-old Brian Fullhart. He's pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder and going armed with intent.

Howard County District Court records say Fullhart shot his wife with a handgun early March 1 at a mobile home in Cresco and later used a bow to twice fire arrows at officers who'd been sent to investigate gunshot reports.

A criminal complaint says one arrow hit a squad car.

Fullhart surrendered peacefully to end the more than five-hour standoff.
